WAN & ODBC

By paul7410 ·
We purchased a barcode software package recently. Currently everything runs on our local LAN. The RF devices telnets (using RF drops) to the telnet server that has the exe. The telnet server has an ODBC connection to our Oracle Database. Now, weneed to move our plant to a seperate building (Buidling B). However, we are keeping the Oracle Database Server and Telnet server at the same location (Building A).

We are thinking of purchasing a DSL line to connect building A & B. How would I set up the RF drops so that they connect to the DSL line and telnet to building A?

Thanks.

WAN & ODBC

Install a virtual private network (VPN) router-to-router connection using static DSL IP addresses at both ends connecting your building A & B. Set close all ports except the Telnet port out of each router. You can now route packets between routers that are connected to the Internet across a virtual connection that emulates the properties of a private, point-to-point connection and logically operates as a dedicated WAN link. Secure the VPN routers from sending or receiving any traffic on the Internet interface except VPN traffic from remote router.

If its a very short distance then consider a router-to-router connection across a private data network with a Frame Relay or Point to Point FracT1 WAN Connection

Building B's RF Drop Receiver unit will need a LAN connection to the router and Building A will need a Lan connection to the Telnet server from that router.

If you have have a VPN Enterprise router with internet access already in building A, you configure the enterprise router with either static routes or with routing protocols, as appropriate.

Hope this helps.
